Here are just a few choices in case you find yourself wondering how to best kick-off this spectacular holiday season:

From Oct. 13-15, the festival will be hosting its fifth year in the vast Mana Wynwood where festival goers can experience a variation of stages and art installations from local artists.

After taking place in the Miami Marine Stadium last year, the largest craft beer festival has returned to its roots and will be taking place Oct. 14 at Peacock Park located in Coconut Grove.

With over 140,000 square feet of attractions, art, music and food, attending this festival will surely grant you one of the best Halloweens you’ve had since the trick-or-treating days. Headliners for the festival include a mix of genres from hip-hop to electronic dance music with artists such as Wiz Khalifa, Yellow Claw, Porter Robinson, Oliver Heldens and more.

5. House of Horror


If you’re in for some good classic haunted house scares and screams, House of Horror may be the place you’d want to go to. Let’s face it, House of Horror is basically the Halloween version of the famous Santa’s Enchanted Forest we all grew up with. So why not continue this 17-year-old Miami tradition? Running from Oct. 4 through Nov. 4, House of Horror provides a variety of attractions. The “1455 Asylum” will take you through a haunted insane ward where the crazies may come out and get you, while “Gates of Phobia” provides a 3D haunted experience where guests may find themselves losing touch with reality. Attendees can also sit and watch “Hellzapoppin” and “Freak Emporium” where they can witness a circus stunt-show and a world of bizarre peculiarities never seen before. Unlimited carnival rides are also included in admission. House of Horror will end with a bang as it plans its “Phantasma Music Festival” with headliners including Luis Fonsi, DJ Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus and Cheat Codes.
